Manual focus
3

I happen to be old, like the OP. And I remember well the Nikon FM and other MF cameras. I don't remember ever using one that is more accurate than modern Nikon cameras with manual focus indication. I too miss seeing an image go from super blurry to bright and sharp when I turn the ring, but all that did not mean you were achieving better focus. As far as I'm concerned, nothing comes close to Liveview manual focus, if you really want the sharpest image possible. But for quick manual focus with no expectation of perfect sharpness, the focus indicator is really good, and this camera has it.
